Wichita West’s Mickey Meyer-Athlete Spotlight-Presented by David Kauffman

Mickey Meyer of Wichita West was an honorable mention designated hitter last season for the Pioneers. Although the season didn’t play out how Meyer would have hoped, he’s still proud of the work put in over the year.

“The past season was a little rough,” Meyer said. “We had our good moments but couldn’t quite put everything together when it mattered.”

After a few heartbreaking losses, the Pioneer’s season was cut just short of postseason play.

“Some goals I had the season were winning a regional and going to state, but we unfortunately fell short,” Meyer said.

Even though Meyer would’ve hoped for a different outcome to the season, he couldn’t be prouder of the unexpected victory the team had early in the season.

“My favorite memory from the season was going up to Lawrence and starting off hot against a team from South Dakota,” Meyer said. “Going into the game we were the underdogs, and we left with the big win to start the season.”

Meyer plans to head into the medical field after graduation, and continue his education and love of helping others.

“After high school I plan to get my EMT and work towards my AEMT,” Meyer said. “After that I plan on getting a degree and respiratory therapy.”
